Restaurants With Beautiful Views of Lake Zurich

The restaurants around Lake Zurich do not just offer culinary delights, but also magnificent views of the lake.

Not to be missed during a visit to a restaurant by Lake Zurich are, of course, local fish specialties. Fischer’s Fritz, situated not far from the city, is said to serve the best “Fischknusperli” (pieces of fish fried in batter) far and wide. The Hirschen am See in Meilen or the Restaurant Schützenhaus in Stäfa also treat their guests to first-class fish straight from Lake Zurich.

Anyone keen on trying typical Swiss specialties is recommended a visit to the Sonnengalerie in Küsnacht or the Landgasthof on the Au Peninsular. At the Rössli, near Hurden, guests sit directly on the lake shore in fine weather, while cheese lovers can tuck into their cheese fondue in an ambiance-steeped wine cellar. 

These and many other restaurants situated directly on the water’s edge or with a magnificent view of the lake can be found in the overview below.
